When I get overwhelmed during my busy day as a working mom of three, I notice that my breath becomes shallow, I feel tight in my chest and there isn’t much room for anything creative to flow. I actually feel this right now. So, I’m going to stop typing for a moment and close my eyes. I breathe. My ribs expand; my breath deepens and slows. I imagine myself at my absolute best, living passionately, fully, and sharing from my heart my experience and wisdom with all of you. A smile spreads across my face. I open my eyes and immediately close them again. I want more of my visualization, to feel my aliveness and truth. I take a few more deep, full breaths, and feed the energy and vision of my most powerful and alive self throughout my whole body and mind. I slowly open my eyes. I feel grounded, inspired, and ready to write and live fully!
This is exactly what I want to share with you all — the power of your breath! Your breath can merely keep you alive. Or, it can change your life. You all know how to breathe and you all know how to dream. By bringing the two together, becoming conscious of your breath, deepening it and infusing it with inspiring images, thoughts or feelings, you are creating the life of your dreams. With each infused breath you move stuck energy, old beliefs and patterns out of your body/mind and move in inspiring images, thoughts and emotions. With practice you’ll live into these inspiring images, thoughts and emotions!
You can practice this infused breathing anywhere: sitting at your desk, at a red light, lying in bed; or you can use it as a focus for meditation. And, this infused breath can be even more potent when paired with a good cardio workout or deep yoga class. Do you know that feeling when your breath is deep and powerful, and you feel the blood and life energy pumping through your whole body? Use this energy and aliveness to spread your infused breath from head to toe and into every cell of your body. We crave more aliveness. Breathe it in.
This week, I invite you to infuse your miraculous and powerful breath with your own inspiring images, thoughts or emotions. With each conscious infused breath, you get closer to living the life of your dreams. What are three inspiring images that evoke the absolute best in you?
Please do post and tell us about some of your inspiring images.
Infuse your life with breath and your breath with inspiration!
